Bangkok, Beijing and Vegas win “best value index”

TripAdvisor’s index reveals best value for hotels and services

Compiled using recommendations and ratings provided by its huge range of users, TripAdvisor now offers a list of the cities around the world that give travellers the best value. The Best Value Index bases its ranking on the cost of one night at a 4-star hotel as well as a pizza, a dry Martini and a taxi trip of specific sizes and distances. Top of the list internationally is Bangkok, at $112. Other cities near the top reveal a surprising variety of destinations, such as Beijing, Sharm-el-Sheikh, Warsaw, Auckland, Kuala Lumpur, Marrakech and even Dubai, each for less than $155. These contrast with capitals like Paris ($429) and London and Tokyo. In the USA, Las Vegas is the best-value city, where it’s often possible to stay at a 5-star hotel for less than $150 a night. New Orleans, Dallas and Atlanta also provide good value, while cities like New York, Boston and Washington are much pricier for visitors.
